The Lake

Our group moved between the ancient statues before coming to a halt.

"This is the sacred lake." Our guide paused for effect. "A place of pilgrimage for young women. Its waters were once thought to aid fertility."

I viewed the rectangular body of dark water. It was an interesting nugget of information, though at the time having babies was not high on my agenda. But not wishing to tempt providence I took a turn around the circumference.

I'll think of that day when I return, later this year, with my son.
